"Be tolerant of THE SKIPPER who disagrees with you... The Schipperke has a right to his Ridiculous Opinion."

I was wondering about something the other day, when the popular phrase came to mind of Don't ask...Don't tell...
This is something Schipperke owners should perhaps practice when wondering just exactly what was that thing your Schip just ate out in the yard.

And the Oscar goes to ... MELANIE!
Yesterday the Three Schippeteers were bathed and brushed. Jordan squirmed and wriggled under the brush as if he had suddenly become a reptile. But Skipper braved the full treatment, including nail clipping and tooth brushing, like an old pro! Thus was I encouraged to try the clippers on Mel. I clipped one nail and Mellie screamed! (I am not exaggerating.) Did I hit the cuticle? Was there blood? No! With a loud "OY!" I let the little drama queen go run off the horrible offense of an attempted manicure.

Signs of spring: blooming bulbs, budding trees, schipperkes running around maniacally, and this year ... drum roll, please ... my 40th birthday! Yup, the Deb is officially middle-aged and still in one piece. I celebrated this weekend by reading from one of my presents, Zen Judaism by David M. Bader. We recommend this gem for Semites and Goyim alike. These seem rather like the Three Schippeteers:
"Be patient and achieve all things. Be impatient and achieve all things faster."
"To depart is to arrive. To leave is to stay. To say good-bye is to begin a lengthy conversation at the front door."
(... during which we will devise a way to open the front gate and continue our evening around the town!)
